Hi everyone. Welcome to the final AlphaBakes round up for now. If you missed the announcement at the beginning of May, we are taking a break from AlphaBakes for a while. We've kept it going for 52 months which is over 4 years and in that time we've managed to run through the alphabet twice! Thank you to everyone who has participated in AlphaBakes through the years and we hope to be back in the future. In the meantime, sit back and relax as we go through the fanfastic final "F" entries for this month.
Suelle from Mainly Baking baked a chunky fig, apricot and prune cake. It's a river cottage recipe which she found whilst searching for a recipe with dried figs. It turned out to be a lovely fruit cake with spice and citrus notes.
Caroline from Caroline Makes baked Ferrero Rocher cupcakes using Ferrero chocolates that she received from a neighbour at Christmas. She adapted my recipe (which was also adapted from someone else!) and made a few changes which resulted in a beautiful and delicious cupcake. I love the chocolate shot on top.
Kate from The Gluten Free Alchemist brings a savoury twist to our round up with a delicious sounding Japanese Fried Tofu with egg, spring onion and bonito flakes. Sadly she is going through a sudden bereavement but has managed to find the time and effort to create a delicious and nutrient packed meal. The recipe is inspired by her time in Japan where she was introduced to a version of this dish by Japanese friends.
Caroline from Caroline Makes is back with an M&M chocolate birthday cake. She baked a chocolate birthday cake for her fiance and had an extra layer of cake which she used to create another chocolate cake. It has chocolate buttercream icing and chocolate fingers around the cake and a sea of M&M's on top. I'm pretty sure there were no leftovers from this!
Next is Stuart from Cakeyboi with his Brownie Batter Swirled Cookie Dough Fudge. He combined cookie dough fudge with brownie batter fudge and added some chocolate chips just before serving. As you can imagine they are quite rich but I'm pretty sure I'd find it hard to stop at just one of these!
Last but not least is my own Chocolate Fudge Cake. It's a Mary Berry recipe and it was quick and simple to put together with great results. The cake was light, moist and chocolatey and the ganache was absolutely divine.
That's the end of the "F" round up and AlphaBakes for now. Hope to see you again soon!
